I assume the one question that remains prevalent on the minds of adults is: what can you do on Halloween when it's no longer socially acceptable for you to trick-or-treat? Of course, the only correct answer is drink!

We've compiled a list of the 10 best halloween-themed cocktails using only the finest spirits for the drink connoisseurs amongst our readers. Sit back, relax, and learn how to make some bloody good cocktails for the upcoming spooky season.

Legend has it that if you say bloody mary 3 times, you won't remember the evening of debauchery you will participate in this halloween... although that could be attributed to the copious amounts of vodka you will likely consume.

Either way, here's The Sybarite's guide to the best halloween cocktail recipes you can recreate this October!

The Bloodiest of Bloody Marys

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces of ciroc premium vodka

  • 4 ounces tomato juice

  • 1 pinch celery salt

  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 tablespoon chopped jalapeño pepper

  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce

For the Rim:

  • Lemon wedge

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • Celery stalk, for garnish

Method

  1. Place the vodka, tomato juice, celery salt, black pepper, paprika, chopped jalapeño, cayenne pepper, horseradish, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce in a cocktail shaker.

  2. Fill the cocktail shaker with ice, place the top on, and shake vigorously.

  3. Take the lemon wedge and rub it on the edge of the glass that you wish to serve the bloody Mary in.

  4. Mix together the salt, paprika, and cayenne pepper in a shallow dish until completely combined. Dip the rim of the glass into the salt mixture so that the edge is completely coated.

  5. Pour the contents of the cocktail shaker into the salt rimmed glass.

  6. Garnish with the celery and serve with some spooky decorations, we recommend these fun test tubes to fill with extra vodka if you want a bit of a stronger drink!
